Art Boosters

Meet Mrs. Herrera!


Johanna Herrera was born in Los Angeles, California, and it was there that she discovered her passion for the sights and sounds of the urban landscape. It was in high school that she found a voice for this passion and that was in the art of black and white photography. Upon graduating from high school she moved 400 miles north of L.A. to study film photography at The Academy Of Art College in San Francisco.  

Throughout her college career she exhibited her black and white as well as color photographs in several local Northern California galleries and group photo exhibits. In 1993, she graduated art school and began traveling as much as possible, exploring exciting new backdrops and cultivating her own style.

“My relationship with art has been a journey of discovery. I have learned not only about technique and media but I have also learned a lot about myself. I began my artistic path with a love of photography and have traveled consistently on that path for 25 years. Along the way I grew passionate about ceramics as well. I was fortunate enough to marry in to a family of artists and it was there that I discovered the art of ceramic and glass.”

Last year, Johanna exhibited her black and white photographic series entitled “Out West” in Arezzo, Italy. This exhibit was a huge success, resulting in several sold pieces and an opportunity to photograph the Italian landscape. Currently she is inspiring and supporting her students at San Rafael High School while working on a new new photographic series based on her travels to Tuscany.
